GAF has been protecting properties across the U.S. with its high-quality, durable roofing products for more than a century. People looking for ways to make their homes more sustainable and energy-efficient can benefit from GAF Energy’s solar roofs. Switching to solar roofing will not only help you save on utility costs, but also boost the value of your home.
As of May 2021, GAF Energy has installed over 2,000 integrated solar roofs, beating another industry leader, Tesla.
GAF Energy Installs More Solar Roofs Than Tesla
In a recent interview with Canary Media, Martin DeBono, GAF Energy President, mentioned that the company has now installed more solar roofs than Tesla. According to Forbes, Standard Industries, GAF’s parent company, is investing over $1 billion over the next few years to engineer an innovative solar design that may be launched this year.
Even during this pandemic, more homeowners are switching to solar. The Solar Energy Industries Association® says residential solar roofing installation in the country went up by 11% from 2019, achieving a record 3.1 gigawatts.
Why Go Solar?
Some homeowners are not too keen on the idea of solar roofing because they are only familiar with rack-mounted solar panels that are on top of shingles. However, you do not need to worry about compromising your curb appeal with GAF’s DecoTech® system. It is a low-profile solar panel system integrated into your existing GAF roofing system.
GAF DecoTech solar roofing generates the same power as a rack-mounted system of the same size, but it complements the aesthetics of your roof. With this roofing option, you will save on your energy costs while also increasing your home’s value and appeal.
